Bucks FizzBucks Fizz

After their hugely popular appearance at the preview party Bucks Fizz are returning but this time with a longer set.

The crowd reaction was amazing as they sang their sadly too short set, so come back for more poptastic classics from our very own Eurovision Song Contest Winners.


The 1993 UK entry for the Eurovision Song Contest, Sonia says that Eurovision was one of the best moments of her life. Better the Devil You Know was first the whole compeition but in the end got pipped by a mere 1 point.

Prepare for a fun filled set bursting with energy and cheer extra loud as in her own words:

"I would love to do the Eurovision again, I really enjoyed it - you never know ."

Nicki FrenchNicki French

Nicki's chart success started in 1994 with her dance version of "Total eclipse of the heart". By 1995 the song had sold over five million copies peaking at number 2 on the USA Billboard top 100 and becoming a worldwide hit. Several follow ups and an album "Secrets" was produced by Mike Stock of SAW fame. 1997 saw a new album "French Revolution" which demonstrates Nicki's song writing abilities. A further worldwide hit single "Te Amo" was released and saw Nicki going top 5 in Brazil! The year 2000 was a great year for Nicki, being chosen by the British public to represent the UK in the Eurovision Song Contest! Although only coming 16th (which is a really good placing these days!), Nicki has fond memories of the experience and would like another shot at it but with a big power ballad! Nicki has released three singles within the last 24 months, "I Surrender", "Calling out my name" and "Total eclipse of the heart 2006".
